Running Apache Samza on Kubernetes - Weiqing Yang, LinkedIn Corporation
Apache Samza is a distributed stream processing framework that allows you to process and analyze your data in real-time. It has been widely used at Linkedin and other companies on a large scale. Recently, we added Kubernetes as the new scheduler backend for Samza to run in distributed mode. In this talk, we will deep dive into the technical details about how Samza runs natively on Kubernetes by leveraging the primitives provided by Kubernetes for scheduling, storages, etc. We will also compare running Samza on Kubernetes with other existing solutions such as YARN and standalone mode. Finally, we will share some practices about running Kubernetes as a container orchestration framework for other big data processing engines.

Building Blocks: How Raw Block PVs Changed the Way We Look at Storage - Jose A. Rivera & Rohan Gupta, Red Hat
Raw block PersistentVolumes (PVs) allow applications to consume storage in a new way. In particular, Rook-Ceph now makes use of them to provide the backing store for its clustered storage in a more Kubernetes-like fashion and with improved security. Now we can rethink the notion of how we structure our storage clusters, moving the focus away from static nodes and basing them on more dynamic, resilient devices.

This talk will go over how we incorporated raw block PVs, how the operator manages them, and how we can now define storage cluster. It will also include a demo of the resiliency of these new types of devices. By the end of the talk, you'll not only know how to use raw block PVs but also why and when to use them.

PodOverhead: Accounting for Greater Cluster Stability - Eric Ernst, Intel
Accounting is very important in Kubernetes. Better accounting leads to improved node stability, density, and more accurate charging users based on their actual resource utilization. Unfortunately, there are gaps in resource accounting in Kubernetes today, mostly based on the fact that running a pod is not actually free.

In Kubernetes 1.16, the PodOverhead feature is introduced to fix these issues.

We’ll dive into the details of a pod’s journey from client CLI to running on a node, touching on kubectl, API server, admission controllers, etcd, scheduler, kubelet, containerd/cri-o, and runtimes like Kata Containers and gVisor. Through this we will highlight the current gaps and how the PodOverhead feature addresses them.

Attend to get a basic understanding of the Pod creation process, and learn what the new PodOverhead feature is and how it can be used to improve cluster stability.

Building the Cloud Native Kernel: Kubernetes Release Engineering - Tim Pepper & Stephen Augustus, VMware
Is Kubernetes a kernel or distribution? Yes! It is necessarily both!

CRD’s, out-of-tree cloud providers, and CNI/CSI/CRI abstractions evolve Kubernetes’ core toward an extensible kernel.

At 2017, KubeCon NA Tim Hockin and Michael Rubin started a conversation on formalizing “Kubernetes upstream as a distro”, proposing we clean up thinking/processes, define tools/standards, incentivize distros to stay close. They argued for a Kubernetes reference distribution focused on correctness and stability.

So where is it?

After a slow start, we have momentum in 2019 to improve conformance, API stability, and better documented support stances. However to understand why we don’t (yet) have an upstream reference distro, we need to dive deep on build/release/test tooling.

This talk will summarize Kubernetes distro issues/advances and potential contribution areas for individuals and companies.

K9P: Kubernetes as 9P Files - Terin Stock, Cloudflare
K9P, a virtual file system, exposes the state of a Kubernetes cluster as files. Our terminals have been optimized over the last 40 years towards working with files, kubectl not so much. K9P allows us to carry the mantra of "everything is a file" to the distributed computing extreme.

K9P allows you to integrate Kubernetes resources into an existing workflow, or create new ones. Scale a Deployment by writing to a file. Locate failing Pods with grep. Update configuration in ConfigMaps with sed.

Let's Try All the CRI Runtimes: Part 2: Answering the Why Question! - Phil Estes, IBM
In Barcelona, we raced through seven different container runtime setups from Docker to cri-o to containerd--including interesting projects like AWS's Firecracker, Kata containers and gVisor. For each we demonstrated how to allow Kubernetes to use each one of them using either RuntimeClass or standard kubelet CRI configuration parameters and then gave a quick highlight of their feature set, maturity, and usage in the ecosystem.

While we successfully demo'd each runtime, we didn't have time to assess each of them with regards to the "why?" question: why would an operator or user choose one of these runtimes? In this "Part 2" talk we will take the time to walk back through each runtime, cover updates to the project since May, look at performance and security characteristics, and answer the why question for each one!

Improving Performance of Deep Learning Workloads With Volcano - Ti Zhou, Baidu Inc
Baidu internally has improved the performance of large-scale deep learning workloads by using the Volcano project. The CRD-based computing resource model makes it possible to use resources more efficiently and configure computing models more flexibly. The Volcano project has unified abstraction of the underlying capabilities of group scheduling, fair share, priority queue, job suspend/resume, etc., which makes up for the lack of functionality of the native job based training operator.

After using Volcano, Baidu's internal resource utilization increased by 15%, and the training task completion speed increased by 10%. This talk will introduce the overall function of Volcano, transformation of the old operator to support Volcano, and the comparison of the performance of deep learning training tasks before and after using Volcano.
